Thank You Jesus for bringing them home safe! America is the greatest! The prayer is what made this video great! Thank God for the fighting soldiers who have brought freedom of speech to this country!

Subject: quite good
Quite a good little film. Ron Howard's version had quite a few factual errors, and this film clears some of them up.

The music was absolutely awful, and as someone who is mostly interested in the technical side of things, I found the prayer parts to be highly annoying. If there wouldn't have been any music or prayer, I would have given it 5 stars.

This video does a great job documenting the Apollo 13 mission problem. Anyone who loved the Ron Howard film must see this. You'll see how realistic the Hollywood version is, right down to the dialogue. Another point - notice the amount of media coverage the mission got AFTER the CM explosion. I wonder if that would happen today. A moon trip is nothing but extrodinary. My only complaint on this piece is the continious use of steel drum music throughout.
